The sun beat down from above, causing even the hardiest of plants to droop and wilt beneath its relentless rays. The meadow within the vale was silent, save for the high pitched whirring of summer cicadas. The air itself seemed to crackle with the heat, sending the world's creatures to seek shelter from its cruel burn. In the Vale, shade was sparse, but what it lacked in trees it more than made up in yawning caverns and sprawling cave systems. Here the very earth itself provided shelter for its children, cradling them in a bosom of cool, moist air.
Galen, a large, black Titan was among them. At the entrance to one such cave system, tangled over with prickly thickets, he lay sprawled. Even a beast so large as he could not tame the elements. It had sent him to ground with a lolling tongue and tired steps. How in Odin's name did it get so hot in a place that had previously had so much snow? A loud groan rumbled from the lounging Felvarg as he fruitlessly licked his lips. The s

MrsEvelyn (Maiara)
While she wasn't expecting to be told yes or no right away, Maia had to say that she was surprised that he seemed so shocked at her offer. Her ears pulled forward as he began to speak, but she frowned at the words that followed. "It's no trouble at all, really. Milani is a wonderful pup, it would be my pleasure to watch her from time to time." She reassured him, letting out a small giggle as the pup started to beg him for it. Looking down at her, she leaned over to press her nose into the child's cheek again, trying to calm her seemingly endless energy. "Now now little one. If your uncle isn't comfortable with it, we can't force his paws." Maiara watched as she bound forward to press into him, biting her lower lip as she watched the girl's eyes go wide and round. Ah, the perfect puppy eyes. She gave Viktor a look, letting him know that he was alone to the mercy of puppy eyes. It didn't often work on her... okay maybe that was a lie. Maiara wasn't

MrsEvelyn (Maiara)
Maiara lingered behind when the child bounded off, her head quickly turning towards the dark male made his appearance. Not wishing to intrude, but not yet wanting to leave, she stood there with a small frown as the child got scolded. If she had been in his paws, she would have done the same thing. In fact, she would have done the same thing if she hac been in Viktor's place. She had to smile for a moment when the child stood up to show off her necklace, a certain fondness in her features. When the male's gaze found her, she blinked as she looked up at him, dipping her head and offering a kind smile. She was about to explain herself when Milani spoke, her voice hushed but not too quiet that she couldn't hear. The young girls words made a flush cross her cheeks, her words sputtering and falling from her mouth for a moment. Maia wasn't used to being complimented, it caught her off guard. It took a little bit, but after a few moments she was able to smile again as

MrsEvelyn (Maiara)
When she felt the little boop on her nose, Maia pulled back back so that the young one could come out of the house again. There was a frown on her muzzle, her maw opening to scold her when she saw what was in her mouth. A gentle gasp left her lips, leaning down to inspect it more. From Milani's jaws dangled a stunning necklace, a delicate silver chain with a large blue stone set into a twisting aray of metals. It was stunning, so much so that she was at a complete loss of words for a moment. Emerald eyes peered closer at it, there was hardly any rust or ware on it. The necklace was beautifully crafted, the best she had seen in a long time. Tenderly she took it from the girls mouth, holding the top of the chain so that the rest of it was open wide. With a quick motion she tossed it around Milani's neck, the small chain nearly vanishing into her fur. Sitting down, Maiara's head fell to the side as she inspected her work. "It's stunning, Milani.

JadeRavenWing (Milani)

With an embarrassed huff Milani flattened her ears against her head, her lips puffing out to pout a bit as Maiara insisted that Viktor cared for her. Sometimes she felt like he was only dragging her along because he had promised to help her, and other times the old grump acted like he really did care. Maybe the woman had a point. Milani eventually shrugged, quick to follow Maia when the fellow Felvarg set off for an old and creaky looking building. Milani was a little too short to actually see it above the crowd, at least not yet, but she was content to trust Maiara to guide her to something interesting. So quick to trust the young pup was. Hopefully it didn’t bite her in the rear someday.
When Maiara asked for Milani’s name the pup flattened her ears as an expression of embarrassment and guilt replaced her happy grin. "Oh no. I’ve forgotten again, haven’t I? Uncle VeeVee always has to remind me to introduce myself." Milani

JadeRavenWing (Milani)
It was about midday, and with spring rolling across the land in full bloom the days were beginning to get a little warmer. A little too warm for one particular Felvarg. Viktor had decided to nap the hottest part of the day away, having finally made it to the village of Hearth. He’d booked a small tent in the visitor’s section of Hearth, had made sure Milani had plenty to eat, and then settled down atop a soft cushion of hides and straw to sleep. It had been a long morning spent walking, though the events of the past few weeks had left him more exhausted than anything. So exhausted, in fact, that Milani swore he was sawing through hardwood logs as he slept. Try as she might the young pup couldn’t find the desire, or the ability, to sleep. Especially not with the way Viktor was snoring. He didn’t usually snore so loudly, if at all, and even pressing her paws over her ears did little to muffle the sounds that rumbled from Viktor’

The Piebald Hunt - RP
JadeRavenwing
    The prey on the docket today was a buffalo. Viktor had decided to pick up one of the local job requests while in Hearth, and the one with the most payout was the request for someone to take down a piebald buffalo that had been spotted roaming the meadows to the east of town. Taking down the beast would be a two-man job though, but even with the split pay Viktor recognized the reward would be well worth the effort. He had left Milani with a trusted pup sitter, much to the pup's whined complaints, and was waiting to meet his partner for the hunt. Having taken a number of similar jobs in the past Viktor was well versed with how they usually went. Find a job, accept the job. If the task required a partner, meet said partner, find the target, and take it down. Things were, usually, relatively simple. As such Viktor waited at the assigned meeting point, a road sign that marked the way into Hearth, and informed its denizens what lay on the road beyond.

Fire, Fire - Tavyn PoC (2/2)
    Fire. Tavyn smelt it before he even realized what it was. At first he thought someone was having a campfire in one of the few cabins that dotted this area of Ulfrheim, but when the scent began to grow stronger Tavyn realized the situation might not be so benign. He paused along the side of the road he'd been following, lifting his nose to scent at the air. There was the smell of burning wood, which was not unusual on its own, but the thick scent of melting sap suggested there was more than just a few logs burning.
    Unfortunately, Tavyn was not familiar with the area, leaving him feeling uneasy about the prospect of investigating things any farther than a few paces off the path. The small satchel of goods across his back clinked as Tavyn shifted his weight. The smart thing to do would be to keep moving and inform the nearest town elders of his concerns... Tavyn glanced down the road before heaving a heavy sigh.

The Hunt - Tavyn PoC (1/2)
    It was time for the hunt. Tavyn, barely a year old, had been assigned to a small group of other young Felvargs in his pack. The three of them were to set out once the sun had fallen half way past noon and bring back their first kill. Not only would the successful Vargs get bragging rights, but a small sum was the prize for the fastest and cleanest kill. Tavyn had been preparing for this hunt for the better part of a month now, following his parents on hunts and doing his best to learn what he could. They were pleased to pass their knowledge onto their son, eager to see him succeed.
    It was rare that a hunter would come back empty handed, but tales of failure and mishap had pervaded the campfire conversations at night and Tavyn found himself nervously pacing the floor of his tent. He knew that if he failed there would be more hunts, and that in the end it was a friendly competition that he had chosen to enter, but to have the trill of his first

A word about my adopt prices
I will throw out some apologies if this sounds like a rant -- it's not. It's just kind of a bare bones explanation which might sound a bit... snippy.  
Anyway, I've come to see some complaints on my adopts and their pricing; people openly telling me they're too expensive for what they are and that I shouldn't be charging so much. 
Firstly, stop. Just... Stop. 
I could end this there with just that because that's the basic gist of it all but I have a few tidbits to kind of give you a bit of insight into some reasons; in case you needed them -- not that anyone who feels a need to complain about a price-tag will bother with it, but maybe just maybe it'll open some eyes a bit. 
We've all see this floating around, and if you haven't, there you go: 

It may not be the most accurate production of industry pricing but it's the most well known one so I'm posting it as an example.

Forest Haunt
Viktor has wandered into the edge of the Path of Valhalla, and swears he saw one of the Trinity passing deeper into the forest. Fortunately he knew better than to try to follow them, having no desire to get lost.

Poked at this between sessions of working on commissioned art. It's quite simple, but I really like the result. Had fun designing the bird too.

Man I feel bad. I had one more from my sale commissions that had already paid, and I completely missed it. ;-;

So sorry for the wait! Spent the past couple evenings making sure I got this finished. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! Snarly dragum.

The sun beat down from above, causing even the hardiest of plants to droop and wilt beneath its relentless rays. The meadow within the vale was silent, save for the high pitched whirring of summer cicadas. The air itself seemed to crackle with the heat, sending the world's creatures to seek shelter from its cruel burn. In the Vale, shade was sparse, but what it lacked in trees it more than made up in yawning caverns and sprawling cave systems. Here the very earth itself provided shelter for its children, cradling them in a bosom of cool, moist air.

Galen, a large, black Titan was among them. At the entrance to one such cave system, tangled over with prickly thickets, he lay sprawled. Even a beast so large as he could not tame the elements. It had sent him to ground with a lolling tongue and tired steps. How in Odin's name did it get so hot in a place that had previously had so much snow? A loud groan rumbled from the lounging Felvarg as he fruitlessly licked his lips. The shade was a blessing, but even it could do nothing against the thirst that ravaged his insides. He had not drank since morning, but it was far too hot to search for water above ground.

Galen shifted to peer into the depths of the cavern. For a moment he stilled his panting tongue, pricking his ears to listen to the soft whistle of air that wound through the caves. It brought with it a slightly sweet scent, and was damp, though Galen knew the caves well enough to understand that it may not have held the promise of water. Yet - Galen's gaze flickered to squint into the bright white of the surface - if he was going to find water, he would have to do it now. With a resigned sigh Galen heaved himself to his feet. He gave no sign of hesitation as he turned to the depths of the cave, determined now to face the treacherous maze.

The heat had not left the Titan without his wits though. As he rounded the first bend of the tunnels he lifted one massive paw and clawed a furrow deep into the soft stone. For a moment he gazed at his handiwork before he continued onwards. He did this each time the path wavered, and when it split he carved two sets of gouges along the way he had come. In this way he marked his path, allowing Galen to travel the caves without the fear of getting lost.

Occasionally he would stop to sniff at an outcropping of rock, or paw at a muddy pool of sludge, but each time Galen would shake his head or snort in disappointment before moving on. This went on for some time before Galen found himself with his nose squashed into a whole in the cave wall. Contrary to the possible conclusion of having lost his mind, Galen had actually managed to find water! A small pool had collected within a crevice in the stone, and Galen was currently engaged with the arduous task of retrieving it. He had quickly realized that the only way to reach it was to jam his snout into the crevice sideways and scoop it out with his tongue. Most Felvargs would have had no problem accessing the reservoir, but Galen? Galen was not most Felvargs, and as such the simple task became monumentally difficult, thanks to his large size.

Each lap of water was accompanied by an embarrassing and obnoxious snort. Fortunately for Galen, and for any potential observer, he was alone. This was all well and good for the world, because it was unlikely the TItan would have left any witnesses to his compromising ordeal. By the time Galen's thirst was sated his teeth were covered in slimy residue from the cave wall, and he spent the entire walk back working the dirt out of his teeth and making a variety of disgusted grimaces. He would be pleased when he next encountered a proper water source. Blasted caves. Blasted heat.

--

Galen was not the only Felvarg suffering from the heat though. On the other side of the world two Felvargs, connected to Galen through the strings of fate, also fought to stay cool. Viktor had collected himself in the shade of an old oak tree, while Milani splashed about in the cold waters of a bubbling brook. The two were far better off than Galen, with both ample shade and water. Milani had her nose submerged just beneath the surface of the water, staring down in fascination as air bubbled forth from her snout. She watched as each bubble rose to the surface, clung there for a brief moment, and was then burst by the current of the stream and carried away. She giggled, finding a child's delight in such a simple thing.

Viktor, meanwhile, simply watched with the faintest of smiles. His head was stretched out in the cool grass, taking full advantage of the shade he found himself in. Yet though his eyes followed Milani's movements, his thoughts were elsewhere. He was thinking of Maiara, of the strange ways she had made him smile, and of the way his mind's eye kept comparing her to his darling Rosanne. He did not bother asking the world why, for he knew the answer to that question already. She was wonderful in the way she had cared for Milani, and an energy bubbled within her that reminded him of the love Rosanne had always had for the world. And yet... Viktor found himself wanting to pull away, to ignore the tugging he felt at his insides. It was rare that he encountered someone that gave him pause, but whenever he did Viktor was plagued with fears of betrayal, and pain.

He had not yet learned that it was okay to move on. Viktor feared that if he let himself stop grieving it would be an insult to his mate and child. That he would, in some way, be betraying them. His focus shifted to Milani. With a heavy sigh Viktor's head lulled to the side, his eyes half closing as a tired haze gripped him. With Milani it was different. She was a chance to start over, to try again. He felt that Rose would have wanted him to protect her, to keep her safe and well, and to not let the sickness that had gripped his poor child take Milani's life. There was no betrayal there. Again Viktor sighed, his expression slipping into a frown that betrayed his distant thoughts. He would not lose another child.

Maiara though? It would be unfair to her for Viktor to pursue her. He did not know if he looked at her and saw her, or if he, instead, saw only what he wanted to see. He would have expectations, and it was not her place to fill a hole that could never be filled. For the third time Viktor sighed. "If you keep sighing like that someone might think you want attention!" Milani called out with a giggle, trotting up to the male to boop her nose against his. The silver necklace that Maiara had given her sparkled in the sunlight, drawing Viktor's gaze up until he lifted his head to smile fondly at Milani.

"Or perhaps I am simply enjoying the sight of you blowing bubbles." Viktor lightly teased.

Milani scrunched her nose and huffed and puff of air into Viktor's face. "You know you could have fun sometimes. You don't always have to lay there and be a lump."

Viktor flattened his ears in surprise, his eyes widening as he stared at Milani. Her bluntness took him off guard, and when he opened his mouth to speak nothing but a surprised splutter escaped. When Milani giggled and butted her forehead against his fondly Viktor couldn't help but smile, nuzzling against the pup with all the fondness of a father. "Well. Would a lump do this?" With no warning Viktor rose to his feet and bowled Milani over. She shrieked loudly in surprise, instantly giving way to dozens of giggles when Viktor began to nibble and blow playfully at her belly. He caught her with a particularly satisfying raspberry, earning another series of giggles and a protesting chain of exclamations. He stopped only when all four of Milani's paws found his face, squishing his nose and lips up into an expression that caused another explosion of giggles from Milani. Viktor grinned around the squishing puppy paws. "Well now. I seem to find myself in a predicament. I suppose I'll just have to eat my way out of this one!"

With exaggerated sounds Viktor opened his mouth and gently gnawed at Milani's paws. "Uncle VeeVee no! I need those!" Milani squealed and flailed, using Viktor's snout to push herself through the grass and away from him. Viktor responded with a warm and hearty chuckle, nuzzling his nose into the young pup's chest fur. He pulled away from her then to grin down at Milani, and was suddenly struck with the realization of how big she was getting! She had at least doubled in size since they had first met, and it left him staring with wide eyes. Milani tilted her head, blinking a couple times before she gently booped her guardian's nose with one paw. "Are you okay Uncle VeeVee?"

Viktor shook his head and his smile returned, leaning down to lick her ear fondly. "Of course! Come, how about I show you how to fish? You're certainly old enough to learn by now! When I was your age I was already hunting rabbits!" Milani perked up at his suggestion, instantly squirming to her feet. Distraction a success, Viktor led her to the water's edge. The stream would be used for more than blowing bubbles today!
